  • New Tucson will be manufactured in India.

  • It will be the most expensive Hyundai product manufactured here.

  • It will be unveiled in 2020, launched in India in 2021.

The upcoming Hyundai Tucson has been spotted testing in South Korea, it's country of origin. It was wearing heavy camouflage at the time of being spotted, but it is of special interest to the Indian market, as it will be the first Tucson to be manufactured here.

The Tucson sold in India so far has either been imported as a whole unit, so manufacturing it here will bring the price down significantly thanks to the reduced tax rates. 

The upcoming Tucson seems to derive inspiration from the Nexo FCEV, and this is quite evident from the DRL design. The 2020 Tucson’s design will definitely be aggressive, and the tail lamps will most probably run across the rear like all new Hyundais.

The squared-off wheel arches lend its styling more muscle. It is currently available with a choice of five engines, three petrol, and two diesel. One of the two types of diesel has mild-hybrid technology as well. The 2020 Tucson is expected to add a plug-in hybrid or a full hybrid driveline option as well. The India-spec Tucson will most probably share an engine with another large Hyundai like the Santa Fe or Elantra that sells in the Indian market. 

Another big change for Tucson is the addition of space at the rear for a third row. Previously, the Santa Fe was the model that could accommodate three rows worth of seating, but the upcoming Tucson looks like it will change that. 

Upcoming Hyundai Tucson Spotted Testing, India Launch Soon

The new Hyundai Tucson will be unveiled in 2020 and will go on sale in the Indian market by 2021. Hyundai will offer both 5 seat and 7 seat versions of it, and it will retail for around the same price as the current Tucson, the Rs 18 lakh mark, and will compete with the likes of the Jeep Compass, 2020 Mahindra XUV 500, the seven-seat MG Hector, and Honda CR-V
